weird lump near uvula
An_250099 posted:

i was curious like all teens my age, i was looking in my mouth and saw that i had a lump near my uvula. after i drank some water, i looked again. at that point i noticed that it moved by my uvula i guess by muscle contraction. well i looked today and it looks like the same size. i visited my doc a few days ago and he said it looked like a papule. i asked him if it was a herpie but he said that there was no red ring around it. im very worried and wanted to know if anyone has any answers. i want to think that its a tumor since my mom has had them in the past. i cant do anything for about 4-5 weeks because thats when the ENT will acept me and if this is bad i dont want to die. i have a picture to show you also. i also have a small bump on the other side near my tonsil. i had quit smoking a few months ago and had a sore throat for a whole week before i noticed this. this was 2-3 weeks ago. any help?? if you look closely at the left side of uvula you'll see the bump
